Jane Sloan vows not to marry, remembering her care-worn (widowed?) mother. She gets a job as a secretary after college. She is tempted by account executive Ken Travers, but tells him she doesn’t want to become a downtrodden wife like her mother. They fall in love anyway. Jane discovers Ken is a widower with a young son; Ken says her insistence on avoiding becoming a wife and mother makes her unattractive to him (even though she likes his little boy). They reconcile when Ken’s son says Jane treated him lovingly.
